Title: Emerging Properties of Quantum Matter - Case Studies of Topological and Superconducting Phases

Emerging properties in quantum matter is a major theme of modern physics, with the promise that insights gained would have implications far beyond these materials. This talk will address two interestimore »ng examples - topological insulators and high-temperature superconductors. The second part of the talk will report recent advances in the study of cuprate superconductors. It is now exactly 100 years since superconductivity was discovered and it took 45 years before a complete theory was formulated. High T_c superconductivity was discovered 25 years ago and it remains a major unsolved physics problem today. Recent ARPES results that suggest phase competition is a central piece of the cuprate physics will also be discussed.« less
